about

Frightfully Friendly Ghosties, described as "exciting, charming and ridiculous," byThe Guardian, is a hilarious book for young readers about the adventures of a funny, charming, and terribly polite group of ghosts who just want to get along with their housemates. The cast of classic characters, brilliant one-liners, and clever plotting will delight children and parents alike.

It's winter, and what better than a ghostly holler-day by the sea? But how are the ghosties to decide between Frighten-on-Sea and Scare-borough? A postcard from their friend Headless Leslie decides for them: Headless is in Frighten and cannot remember how to get home. So the friends set of on an exciting ghostie caper involving a haunted Frighten pier, a fun fair, and a mysterious phantom magician. But will it all end in spooky fun or devilish disaster?

Editorial Reviews

"Fans of the Dunderheads books will recognize a similarly dark brand of comedy in Roberts's b&w art, whose delicate ink lines and lightly macabre subject matter make it feel like a humorous cousin to the work of Edward Gorey."-Publishers Weekly
